Mr. Heater hose assembly. Need Teflon tape?

5 posts in this topic

Hey quys got a quick question for ya. I just purchased the hose to hook my Mr. Heater/Cooker to a 11lb LP tank. I was planning on just tightening both ends on and be done with it. My buddy says I need to put teflon tape on connections. I looked in at the packaging the hose came in and could not find anything about teflon tape. I always thought since the 1lb tank just screws on the hose would be the same way. Also wouldn't the LP breakdown the teflon tape anyways creating more problems? Did you guys use teflon tape?

Thanks in advance. I don't want my FT Yukon to turn into a propane fueled spud gun with ME being the spud tomorrow on the ice:)!!!!

I have never used Teflon tape on any of the propane fittings I have screwed together. Now is this right, I do not know, but i have never had a leak issue yet in 20 years of putting togther Mr. heater stuff and other propane stuff.

Good luck..

Only if you've stripped the threads...which in most cases I avoid using them.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
